Ockham's Razor, By Brian37

(FYI, I looked up the spelling and it seems to vary so if anyone knows the original).

Ockham's Razor, By Brian37

 

Utterances abound

Nothing profound

Imaginations compete

Through marketing

 

The mechanic does not

Dismantle the car

As a default

If it does not start

 

An atom is simple

Builds to the complex

Not the reverse

As believers suggest

 

A "who" is not needed

For all of this

Much less one

Rooted in myth

 

100 grand

In years it takes

For a ray of light

To travel the galaxy

 

How petty the stories

How mundane we are

As a species

To fill in the gaps with absurdities

 

The believer accepts

All others wrong

Refusing to question

Claims of their own

 

Between postulations

Of the two

Of existence or imaginaton

Which one is true?

 

A magical brain

With no location

No material

With super powers

 

No neurons

No cerebellum

Who fancied

Our violent universe?

 

Or could it be

Our mundane wishes

Of super heros

To come and save us?

 

Between the two

What makes more sense

A self centered deity

Or self serving humans

 

Thoughts require

A material process

Much like running

Requires legs

 

Running

Is not a thing

But the description

Of physical action

 

Ockham's Razor dispels all myth

By rightfully defaulting to the simplest choice

A comic book hero

Vs human's wishful thinking?
